Agitation Co-op at Temple Bar Gallery + Studios is an exhibition that investigates the subject of landscape from a range of vantage points; not only social and political ideologies but also, mapping and topography. The exhibition includes artworks by Michele Horrigan, Catriona Leahy, Laurie Robins, and Libita Sibungu. It is accompanied by an online screening programme highlighting films by Forensic Architecture, Melanie Smith, and Eva Richardson McCrea, Frank Sweeney and the Dublin Dockworkers Preservation Society.

On Belonging presented by Basic Space Dublin and The Library Project is a collaborative group exhibition guest curated by Diana Bamimeke. It presents new and existing work by Bassam Al-Sabah, Moran Been-noon, Oscar Fouz Lopez, Maïa Nunes, Salvatore of Lucan and Osaro. Each of the exhibiting artists have been invited to respond not only to the state of belonging - how it is conceived and made physical - but conversely, to not-belonging, and the outcomes of both in the modern world.

Luminous Void: Twenty Years of Experimental Film Society at Project Arts Centre is an overview of the twenty-year history of Experimental Film Society (EFS). Hailed as “the most active, prolific and intrepid group of experimental filmmakers working in Ireland today” (aemi), EFS is a company dedicated to the production and distribution of personal, formally challenging experimental cinema. Luminous Void showcases the artists currently working under its banner: Rouzbeh Rashidi, Atoosa Pour Hosseini, Maximilian Le Cain, Vicky Langan, Michael Higgins, Jann Clavadetscher, Chris O’Neill and Shelly Kamiel.
